Take care of your used car in Charlotte!

Let’s say you’ve already purchased a used car in Charlotte from Toyota of N Charlotte. You’ve been driving it and it’s been great, but now what? You need to maintain your used car’s performance! It isn’t a new Toyota near Charlotte, so the maintenance routine will be different. New cars typically have a break-in period of about 2,000 miles, but used cars are a completely different ball game. You may not be sure how the last owner took care of the car, but now it’s up to you to keep it running properly!

Car service centerSome maintenance will require a check of your mileage. Each used car in Charlotte has a different amount of miles and a different make and model. If you have purchased a used car that isn’t a Toyota, you’ll have to refer to your owner’s manual. There are big repairs that you may need done, but not until you hit a certain number of miles. This is key: don’t fall for repairs you don’t need. When you purchase your used car in Charlotte, consult your owner’s manual so you’ll be prepared for car repairs like replacing spark plugs or coolant flushes. If a mechanic has told you need a repair that needs to be done immediately, it’s a good idea to get a second opinion.

Always keep up with regular oil changes in Charlotte. This is very important to maintaining a used car especially since you aren’t quite sure what went on before you purchased the car. Be sure to check your oil every hundred miles, until you can get yourself on a schedule for regular oil changes. At our Car Service Center in N Charlotte, we can get you in and out quick with our four quick oil change pits! While oil changes can be pesky, they are necessarily to keep your car sharp!

Again, each used car in Charlotte is different and the tires require a different amount of air. For this maintenance we suggest looking in your owner’s manual. Or, our Toyota certified technicians will be happy to check you tire pressure the next time you come in for an oil change!

Some cars even have a light that pops up on the dashboard to warn you tire pressure is low. Be sure to pay attention to what your car is telling you! If your check engine light is on in your used car in Charlotte don’t wait to bring it into the shop! It could lead to a more serious problem or repair than what needed to be fixed originally.
